Soft Play Drop-Ins

Drop in
Our popular soft-play drop-ins run four days a week for different age ranges – view our current timetable here. There is no charge for the drop-in’s, however donations are welcome.The drop in includes a toddler gym where children can run around and use lots of energy, baby areas and other activities such as a reading corner, art activities and story and song time session. PLEASE NOTE – Parents must stay with their children during the drop-ins.


The crèche is open on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 1pm-3pm during term time for ages six months to five years. It is a purpose built space with a small outside play area and offers a safe and stimulating environment for local children to play and learn.Each session has 11 places and children are allocated two afternoons a week. Sessions cost £3.50, or as a concession for low income families, £2. The creche is very popular and as places are limited there is currently a waiting list. If you wish your child to go on the waiting list call into the centre. Each term there is topic based learning, this has included transport, ourselves, our families and our community and celebrations of different cultures, for example Chinese New Year and Christmas. We also have ‘Let’s Play’ sessions in the crèche for 1-2 years on a Tuesday (10 – 11.30am) and for Under-1s on Fridays (10am-11.30).
